Donor advised funds are surging in popularity among individuals and families looking to make an impact. 


A Personal and Powerful
Approach to Philanthropy

For individuals and families interested in personalizing their philanthropy, we offer the option of establishing a donor advised fund where we can assist you in finding projects that align with your passions. It is also a way you can support organizations you already give to but with even further tax savings and greater convenience. 

One of our supporters, Loretta Huahn, established a donor advised fund to help maximize the impact of her giving. We work with her each year to identify a project that fulfills her philanthropic goals. Loretta says, “In order to achieve impact, you need to work with an organization that’s versatile, dynamic and sensitive to the donor’s passion and goals. The Asian Pacific Fund demonstrates these qualities and leadership that I look for.”
Other benefits of setting up a donor advised fund with us include:
  • Easy to establish with deposit of $5,000 or more via cash, appreciated stock, real estate or other assets
  • Immediate tax deduction with ample time to determine how to distribute your donations
  • Hassle-free since we take care of all administrative tracking and due diligence requirements
Establishing a donor advised fund can also have a dual purpose. According to Dale Minami and Ai Mori, “We set up our donor advised fund because it’s a convenient way to give to the causes we care about while also supporting the Asian Pacific Fund - an organization that has deep roots in the Bay Area and an unwavering commitment to our community.” 

The donor advised fund is just one of many philanthropic strategies we offer to individuals looking to make a lasting difference in their community. For more information or for help establishing a donor advised fund, please click here.
